Living in temporary accommodation Kevin didn’t feel able to cook well and he survived off fried eggs and microwave meals!
For many people living in temporary accommodation, cooking healthy and tasty meals can be a real challenge due to the lack of cooking facilities and limited finances. We knew that for this to be a useful cookbook for people living in emergency accommodation - as well as those with their own homes - we needed to show that there are delicious things you can make with very limited cooking facilities and cheap ingredients.
Bourne to Cook tells the story of Kevin’s journey and his discovery of his love of cooking. Kevin was in full-time employment for 41 years until he suddenly found himself unemployed due to ill health. While living in temporary accommodation, Kevin didn’t feel able to cook well and he survived off fried eggs and microwave meals!
